The Last Weekend Rush

As the last weekend before Chinese New Year approached, the bazaar buzzed with activity as stall operators aimed to entice crowds and boost sales. Despite the challenging weather conditions, some stall operators offered generous discounts of up to 50% on their items in a final push to attract customers. Shin Min Daily News reported.

Challenges Faced by Some Stall Operators

While the bazaar saw a surge in foot traffic, not all stall operators experienced booming sales. The intermittent rain and increased competition from a higher number of stalls dampened sales for some vendors. A stall selling cured meat reported a slight decrease in sales compared to the previous year, attributing the decline to the unfavorable weather conditions and heightened competition.

Discounts and Sales Strategies

While some stall operators chose not to offer discounts to maintain fairness to early customers, others opted to slash prices to clear stock and recoup costs. A stall selling jelly along Temple Street, for instance, offered a significant discount of 50% off the usual price, attracting bargain-hunting customers.

Success Stories Amidst the Challenges

Despite the hurdles, some stall operators thrived in the final stretch of the bazaar. A stall selling Chinese New Year snacks reported robust sales, with earnings surpassing previous weekends. By offering bundled discounts on their products, they successfully attracted repeat buyers and satisfied customers.

Conclusion

The Chinatown bazaar, despite facing intermittent rain and stiff competition, remained a bustling hub of activity in the days leading up to Chinese New Year.
